"You can always rely on Melissa Foster to deliver a story that's fresh, emotional and entertaining. Make sure you have all night, because once you start you won't want to stop reading. Every book's a winner!" New York Times Bestselling Author Brenda Novak

"Like Nora Roberts, Melissa Foster has captivated me with her fantastic, sexy, romantic stories." K. Winning

After months of long-distance communication, actress Parker Collins and artist Grayson Lacroux finally plan to reconnect in the seaside town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts. But Parker never shows, and weeks pass without a word, leaving Grayson to believe he's misinterpreted their budding relationship.

Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she's ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she's prepared to hole up and mourn--and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn't count on the sinfully hot artist she's been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.

When Grayson stumbles across Parker, he has no idea what to make of the gorgeous blonde who blew him off despite the heat sizzling between them. But that doesn't stop him from feeling protective of the woman who's consumed his thoughts for months, and when he learns of Parker's plans to confront an angry old man, he refuses to leave her side. As Parker's past unfolds, they're led on an unexpected journey of discovery. Their connection deepens, and late-night fantasies become passionate realities, until good intentions spark painful secrets, threatening the love they've found.

Both Grayson and Parker realize their attraction started through email is very much alive and well when they meet. Grayson is able to help Parker though her grief, even though he is a stupid man, which causes a HUGE bump in the road and helps her to find family again even when that means pushing people. Grayson and Parker's love will melt your heart and who can resist a dog named Christmas!

A love story for the ages!

I absolutely loved Grayson & Parker's story. They have such a connection. Grayson is an artist that has been working with movie star Parker via email. But even through the email, there is a connection that neither of them can deny. When Parker's friend & mentor passes away, she runs to Wellfleet and finally meets Grayson face to face. And they are inseparable. He helps her heal and when long lost family secrets are exposed, he is there for her even though he went against her wishes.

Grayson and Parker have a love story for the ages. Melissa Foster has woven a wonderful love story and added to the series in such a great way.

Seaside Lovers Grayson #2 book boyfriend

Grayson worked his way into my heart right from the beginning. He is the perfect mix of confident alpha male and a sweet, caring man. You are going to fall head over heals in love with him. I love how Grayson can see through to the real Parker. He's so in tune with her. Parker loves her job as a movie star, but she longs to be her true self. And Grayson doesn't get caught up in the act she has to play because of her celebrity status. He knows just what she needs and when she needs it both emotionally and physically. The sexual sparks and tension between Parker and Grayson just fly off the pages. They both thoroughly enjoy when he brings out her naughty side. I love this book so much I'm going back to read it again.
Grayson has taken over my #2 book boyfriend.
